Adventure is one of only two surviving knockabout fishing schooners, the last and most developed type of thousands of fishing schooners. Built in Essex, Massachusetts, in 1926 by the John F. James and Son Shipyard, the schooner fished on the North Atlantic banks until 1954. Although she was built at the end of the fishing schooner era, when reliable and economical diesel engines had begun to replace sail power to propel fishing vessels, Adventure represents the last group of vessels built in America for deep water sailing.” Previously listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the Landmark designation was granted on April 19, 1994.
